Extra Curricular Information

I work in a sales job with heavy quota requirements (i.e. you don't meet them in any quarter, you can get fired) anywhere from 33-41 hours per week at the current time. I did some minimal recurring volunteering (YMCA, Humane Society, Waco Youth Commission). I have had internships with the Texas Attorney General and a law office in Dallas, Texas (twice).

For Baylor I applied to Summer, Fall, and Spring.

For George Mason I applied to both FT and PT ED.

For Connecticut I applied to both FT and PT.

For Temple I applied to both FT and PT.

On all of the dual apps, I selected PT as the preference, so hopefully that'll help...

Dates received are dates that a) I received letter or email saying 'received' and/or b) dates LSDAS report was pulled (since they had to have received my app first).

Dates accepted/rejected/deferred are the dates of phone call or the date the letter was dated.

Any scholarship amounts are total for 3 years.

Additional info & updates

I just realized I applied to a ton of schools...

I received a lot of fee waivers.

06-13-08 - I am going to USC in the fall. Anyone going to Columbia as well feel free to email or message me on here or TLS (akahrpaperstacks). The only thing that will change my course is a call from SMU and then I would go there. We'll see. I have withdrawn from all schools except Arkansas (in the event I hate Columbia when I visit...doubtful).

05-26-08 - Off waitlist at Marquette. Not sure what I want. USC is still #1 by far so I'm going to pay that deposit before June 2nd and just operate on a 'going there' premise. SMU would trump them...where are you??

05-20-08 - OFF THE WL AT SOUTH CAROLINA! I ALSO GOT A 1/2 TUITION SCHOLARSHIP! I'm gonna go ahead and withdraw from Creighton, Albany and the rest of my WL except for SMU and Marquette!

05-14-08 - In at Arkansas-Fayetteville with scholarship (funny since I was rejected in December). Still waiting on SMU but Arkansas just went to #1 in my book to accepted schools.

05-01-08 - Some new news. WL at SMU. I'm pretty excited about it because I thought it would be an outright reject. Still no word from Denver and waiting on WL at a bunch of schools.

04-14-08 - Paid deposits at Albany and Creighton. Waiting on the others still outstanding.

03-28-08 - WL at South Texas. Kinda disappointed because a) thought I was basically auto admit and b) one of my legit top choices. Oh well. I called Denver and South Carolina. Both schools told me that I would be receiving decisions 'soon' because my file was 'in review'. I am also still 'in review' at Houston and have been for a month and a half.

03-27-08 - Rejected at Baylor (expected), WL at Hofstra.

03-15-08 - Just got back from Omaha and Creighton. Was offered a virtually free Masters in ADR if I wanted it...no scholarship increase. Checked my mailbox and received 25k/yr from Albany. Brings total cost to 10k/yr, they just jumped up into serious contention with Creighton...maybe even ahead of them.

03-06-08 - Rejected from UT. No surprise at all. Still about 15 to go...withdrawing from several.

02-04-08 - Out at American. WL at L&C.

02-02-08 - Deferred at SMU. Not a rejection...so happy.

02-01-08 - WL at Loyola-Chi, FT Scholarship at ONU.

01-31-08 - Recap the last few days. Out at UCONN. 54k/3 years at Capital. Deferred at DC, Rej at Tulsa. Waiting on SMU.

01-23-08 - 9-day lull. Phone call from OCU Law Dean offering acceptance.

01-14-08 - $30k at Willamette. WL at Temple! (thought outright reject). Out at Cincy and Hamline.

01-10-08 - Out at GMU, no big deal.

01-07-08 - Phone call with 20k/yr from Western New England. It's a nice welcome home present. Just got home to rejections from Seton Hall (that sucks) and NYLS (don't care) and a package from St Thomas with a T-shirt and a handwritten letter (i thought it was pretty neat).

12-24-07 - Got 8k/yr from St. Thomas-Min and WL at Depaul (HUGE) and Drexel. Merry Christmas!

12-20-07 - FUCKING IN AT CREIGHTON W/SCHOLLY!! I also went 0/2 in the state of Arkansas.

12-17-07 - Deferred at Penn State. They want my fall grades. It is good to know that they didn't just reject me, makes me happy.

12-07-07 - I was deferred at Tulsa. Not gonna lie, it kinda hurts. Especially when I see people with lower overall numbers and indexes admitted with scholarship. Oh well.

12-03-07 - First response! REJECTED by Arkansas-Fayetteville...Also finally got all LSDAS reports requested. So now it is just a waiting game.

How did you get so many fee waivers? Were they unsolicited?

FW
Tuesday, November 20 2007 at 07:00 PM

5-7 were CRS through LSAC and hidden. The rest were emailed, mailed, or received at the LSAC forum.

Wouldn't it be nice if we both got into UT with full scholarship? haha, here's to wishful thinking and lots of acceptances!

hey, you are the same sailorbear as sailorbear2008 from TLS, right? where do you go to school? im at a private school in texas right now as well

:)
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

got it! ok! i have a couple friends there actually. that was was my 2nd choice for undergrad, its a beautiful school. the school i'm at: your football team came and played ours for the first game of the season our mascot is on the endangered list i'm just an hour and a half north on i-35 :)

o yeah
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

and i dont really have a number one. im just waiting to see where i get in. im scared to get my hopes set on a school and then get rejected. after my reject from ou, i feel like this cycle is going to be a lot more unpredictable than i had originally anticipated. what about you?

ou
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

seriously? i didnt realize their residency quota was so intense! howd you find that out? that makes me feel TONS better, thanks :) i think im going to apply to a few more schools once im finished with finals. any suggestions? i was thinking about florida coastal, hofstra, and regent since they sent me fee waivers, but i'd like some others...

excellent
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

just...wow
Sunday, January 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

Good god, man! That is a crapload of apps! You know you can only go to one place, right? I think you will be this cycle's official Law School Heartbreaker.

So many apps
Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

looks like you dont really know what your loking for in a Law School. There is a such thing as too many choices

Whoa
Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

lol sorry I hurt your feelings sir. Didnt know that not applying to 50+ schools was being cliche, but I guess i kinda see your point about not wanting to get rejected from every school. The name calling was not necessary, hopefully ull be able to keep it together in the court room

Mr Bear
Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Jeeez. Man, never did I say that you obviously didnt know what you want, nor did I say that name calling was your last resort. I said it looks like you didnt really know what you wanted because you applied to so many law schools, many of which that seemed to be very different from one another. Never did I accuse you of anything; I simply stated an opinion which I hardly think is out of line considering that is one of the reasons this site exists. You know yourself the best obviously and you stated your reasons for applying to so many. The only thing that was out of line was you calling me an asshole for having an opinion on you applying to what seemed to be an excessive amount of schools. I felt I was being honest, but I guess maybe a little bit too blunt for your liking. I wasnt trying to attack you, as it seems like you have assumed I didnt think it would be such an issue, nor did I anticipate it starting a heated dialogue on the subject. I wish you luck at getting into your top schools and I apologize for any grief that I may have caused you in your pursuit at attaining your legal education.

Almost....
Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey Whats u! Congrats and good luck on your cycle! You are the closest person i've seen come closest to applying to as many schools as you..... i got you beat though. lol. Good luck kid! we're rooting for you....

TTU
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

i cant believe nobody has heard back from tech yet!! last year ppl on LSN started getting responses in november. the suspense is killing me!! this better not be a bad sign ;)

NOOO
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

o the horror,please Lord do not make us wait until January for a decision from them! this is just cruelty!

Yo
Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey man, Yeah my bad i didnt mean to sound like such an ass. And after you explaining it, its really not that unreasonable. Above all else what we all want is to go to Law school, and honestly if a bunch of school start rejecting me, ill probably start scrambling to apply to some more safety schools, but by that time it may already be too late, so i can def see your reasoning. But the good news is that at the very least we both know at this point we can at least go to law school somewhere

I'm Impressed
Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 07:00 PM

I think you may have won the 'Most Law Schools Applied To' Award... How many different personal statements did you have to write?

ttu
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

yeah, i got that email about 2 weeks ago. i've been frantically checking my mailbox about 3 times a day since then. i agree, i'd rather get an acceptance in january opposed to a rejection now!! did you see that Ninja1 was accepted today? looks like tech is using some interesting strategy about getting seat deposits in extra early this year

Congrats on your acceptances!
Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

It's all down hill from here!

Wow
Tuesday, October 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

COngrats dude so far.... you're doing great, and school and throwing money at u too! Thats awesome! I also applied to a ton of school... I horp some of your success rubs off on me.... Well good luck on the rest of your process!!!

Are you...
Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

...the Sailorbear from TLS? This is Brain Age. Noticed your profile scanning the Texas Tech apps. Good luck with the Tech waitlist, but you've got a lot of places to choose from already :)

Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

how did tulsa notify you? congrats

Thanks
Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

On the UH status checker, where'd you hear that? Are you going by the date posted on the page? - If so, applicants were getting decisions despite the date not changing from Dec. 18 in weeks.

Appreciate
Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

the info. I'll probably cut back to checking 1-5 times a day, but that's better than on the hour :) Baylor - so I'm sure you've seen all the boot camp law students marching around on campus. I still haven't been up there, but heard it's a beautiful school. Hopefully my first trip up will be for an ASW. Best of luck to you too. Being a splitter, I'm sure you felt like you had to cast a wide net, but do have preference in school location?

Baylor
Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

I just got an acceptance from Baylor with $ and am reading through past Baylor TLS threads. I read somewhere that you have a couple of friends who regret choosing Baylor over SMU/UH. Mind elaborating? You posted a bunch of your impressions of the school already, but anything will help :) This whole deciding on law school thing was fun for a second, but is becoming way too real! You can hit me up here or PM me on TLS. Thanks in advance. P.S. Congrats on OCU, btw!

Willamette
Thursday, September 07 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I was just curious if your scholarship amount at Willamette is per year or total. We have similar indices but my offer was significantly less. Thanks and good luck!

Good Luck
Thursday, January 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good Luck on the rest of your cycle, I didn't think I'd find someone who applied to more schools than me. Creighton is a decent school so you've got to be happy about that one although I'm sure you're hoping for more acceptances. Hope the cycle treats you good!

Tulsa
Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm withdrawing from Tulsa in your honor.

Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

when u applied to lewis and clark, did they give you a password and login information? think they have online status ? right? congrats! - iwill

Creighton
Sunday, December 23 2007 at 07:00 PM

Saw you were accepted into Creighton...any interest in going there? I think as of now, it's probably my top choice. Keep me updated!

Tulsa
Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

I can't believe Tulsa rejected! That low GPA is a killer, but it looks like your still having a great cycle. On top of that when you submit your grades for this term you should show significant forward progress, which means a lot. Good luck, you doing really good so far

Albany
Thursday, January 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on Albany - that's a nice looking scholarship offer - with the recession staying out of as much debt as possible will probably be an important thing in the future - Good Luck!

Albany twins!
Monday, February 25 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey man, Congrats on that Albany Scholarship! Who'da thought guys like us would be getting money like that from halfway decent schools! Any plans on taking them up on it?

Good luck
Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 07:00 PM

Dude, congrats on all those schools you got in. My numbers are very similar to yours. I like your shotgun approach. I think people with GPA like ours are just happy to go to any law school especially with scholarship. I decided on LS late (February LSAT). I will do the same thing you do. But I don't think i have time to send out 50 applications, maybe 20.

you on TLS a while back. You can disregard it, though, since I'm decided :). WL at STCL?? That's crazy! Looks like I'll be there this fall with your friend, G_S. Any idea where you're headed?

Did you apply for FT or PT? Are you still considering FIU?

CONGRATS on Arkansas-Fayetteville! thats very very exciting! i went and visited a few months ago, and its a beautiful state and school. were you aware they were still actively considering you even though they rejected you in december, or was the acceptance and scholarship a complete surprise? what have you narrowed your choices down to now?
